I finally decided to get this, even if it has not been updated for ages. I wrote the dev and asked.. he says he's too busy. Too bad.. in any case it works on my Lion system with all my soft including CS6. Needs to be relaunched once in a while but it is such a great tool for a designer that I don't care.. there is not single tool that approaches this, not Color Schemer nor any other. This guy/dev needs to be encouraged to upgrade it just to keep it stable.

Excellent software and YES it is compatible with Snow leopard, but with some bugs.

The major bug is that the Tangerine menu bar icon quit after some time but only a double click on the Tangerine icon and the menu bar icon is of return.

Also, the editor work on a update!

The problem still exists and I used the tool "Lingon" to create a launchd process which starts Tangerine every other minute. That way it keeps running. Of course it would be nice if the developer himself could fix it.
Otherwise it still is one of the best color palette tool for osx and I can only highly recommend it.

Very nice and usefull application, but NOT compatible with Snow leopard. The support don't give any date for an update. I think they should mention this on the product page or stop selling it until it is compatible with the current OS release.

Brilliant and very flexible to use with Pro apps as well as those that use Apple's color picker. Well worth the moolah.
